Burlington, WA – The Children’s Museum of Skagit County is hosting a FREE 3-day Family Friendly Winter Wonderland Event at the Cascade Mall in Burlington, WA on December 8th, 9th, and 10th!
The Free 3-day event will include activities for children, families, teens and adults both indoor and outdoor, so bring the entire family! Nearly the entire event is FREE this year thanks to support from the City of Burlington’s Lodging Tax Grant and a large amount of sponsors!
Starting Friday December 8th and Every Day of the event, there will be real Snow trucked in from Mt. Baker for kids to play in. Families will have the opportunity to learn about skiing and snowboarding as well as build a snowman, slide down a hill, try snowshoeing, snow painting and more!
Once the family has had enough fun playing in the snow outside, they can easily head inside the mall to warm up. There will be several bouncy inflatable houses to jump and roll around in, like the one pictured above from last year’s event! There will also be a rock climbing wall, carnival games, face painting, crafts, mini golf, character meet and greets and other fun activities throughout the 3-day event.
“We are looking forward to another exciting event especially since this year it’s 3 days with more to do both inside and outside” said Jenny O’Brien, Marketing Manager for the Cascade Mall, “Winter Wonderland has the best of both worlds with opportunities to build a snowman, slide down a hill, visit reindeer and then head inside to warm up with the bouncy houses, mini golf, music, crafts and much more!”
Though admission to the event is FREE, each participant will need to register daily for a new wristband. This helps the Museum track attendee and visitor data and more importantly to plan for the next year!
Participants of all ages are welcome and encouraged to play and interact!
SHOPPING: The Children’s Museum will be open as well as their Holiday Toy Store where kids can purchase gifts for under $5 for their family members and wrap them before they leave.
